I really enjoyed the nostalgia of this graphic highlighting the history of digital storage. If you work for a company like Seagate, storage tends to be top of mind. (That and when that sushi chef is coming back to the cafeteria.)  Let’s hold hands and whistle a happy tune as we take a stroll down memory lane looking at “archaic tech” like the cassette tape (660KB), the Digital Audio Tape (DAT – 1.3GB) and the Zip disk (100MB).

Thanks, Mashable, for another nifty graphic.
